How can I install Slackware over Redhat 7.3

At the moment I am running Red Hat 7.3 but I want to re-format my Linux partition to install Slackware 9.1 but GRUB is installed on the MBR. How should I install Slackware? I also have Windows 2000 running on a different partition.

Thanks in Advance

Just pop in the slackware CDs and begin. You can let slackware install lilo over grub (if you wish). When you get to the part about formating the drive you just need to completely wipe your redhat partitions. You can't do any type of "upgrade" from RH to Slack.
You won't have to do anything with your swap partiton. They can both use the same one.
